In a touching Father's Day tribute, Mindy Kaling, 44, shared heartfelt words and rare photos of her children, Katherine, 5, and Spencer, 2, on Instagram. 

The actress expressed her gratitude for her own father and highlighted the special bond he shares with her little ones.

"My dad shows up," Mindy wrote in the caption alongside the adorable pictures. "He was the one who drove me from the hospital after both my kids were born... He comes to the house at least once a day to play with the kids, take them to the farmers market, pick them up from school."

The Sex Lives of College Girls alum continued to share heartwarming anecdotes, including her father's willingness to partake in her children's "insane plans" like spinning Grandpa around in a round chair.

“I’m the only parent my kids have,” she told Marie Claire. “I think I err on the side of super cautious so that there’s less things that they can potentially be mad at me about down the line.”

As fans speculate about the father's identity, Kaling addressed the ongoing rumors surrounding her close relationship with B.J. Novak, her former partner and The Office co-star.
